As I was going over the Kilmagenny mountain
I saw with captain Farrell and his money he was counting.
I first produced my pistol, and then produced my rapier.
I Said stand and deliver, for I am a bold deceiver,

Kertos{je: musha ring dumma do damma da ( tai jotain )
Whack for my daddy 'ol
Whack for my daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar

I counted out his money, and it made a pretty penny.
I put it in my pocket and I brought it home to Marley.
She said and she swore, that she never would leave me,
But the devil take the women, for they never can be easy

Kertos{e, elikk{ Chorus

I went into my chamber, for to take a slumber,
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder.
But Jenny took my charges and she filled them up with water,
And send for captain Farrel to be ready for the slaughter.

Chorus

It was early in the morning, before I rose to travel,
The guards were all around me and likewise captain Farrel.
I first produced my pistol, for she stole away my rapier,
But I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken.

Chorus

If anyone can aid me, it's my brother in the army,
If I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney.
And if he'll come and save me, we'll go roving near Kilkenny,
And I swear he'll treat me better than me darling sportling Jenny

Chorus

Now some men take delight in the drinking and the roving,
But others take delight in the gambling and the smoking.
But I take delight in the juice of the barley,
And courting pretty Jenny in the morning bright and early

Chorus
